This selection of Mexican love poems spans the centuries and lets us see the changes, the variety, the depth and sweep of the poetry of Mexico. I was delighted to find many of the best-loved poems I knew well, to discover new poems by authors I already loved, and to discover poets new to me, thanks this anthology. The English versions are beautiful poems in their own right, and that's my first criterion: the translation of a poem should, above all, be a poem. Yet these versions always respect the immediate and the deeper meanings of the originals.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
